UTICA, N.Y. – The Irish Cultural Center in Utica had its liquor license reinstated Tuesday after it was temporarily revoked over the weekend.
The center lost its license due to an issue with the format of the space, but has now resolved the problem.
The Liquor Authority has the center’s license listed as ‘active’ after it was marked ‘inactive’ on Saturday. It is not clear if the license is permanently reinstated, as the expiration date of is listed as Feb. 11.
The center is also waiting for a $1 million grant from the state, that Sen. Joseph Griffo says is on hold for now.
According to Griffo, the center hasn’t lost the funding, it will just be held until the parties involved can address the problems with the building configuration in relation to serving alcohol.
Giffo says efforts are being made to resolve those issues.
